Super Angie...Mt Rainier...PART SIX...More at Muir

Mount Adams. We could also see St. Helens and Mt. Hood. Incredible views from Muir.
These guys arrived after dark, and pitched their tents in the dark RIGHT INBETWEEN TWO CREVASSES!!! Holy crap!
Staying at Muir was really fun. The clouds, the sun set, the sun rise, the stars, the moon. I didn't like hearing rock and ice fall all night, but even that added to the adventure.
Our great little two person 4 season tent from REI.
The view from our tent...we could see the ranger's hut up on the hill, as well as some tents pitched down in the "valley".
Someone was actually painting this hut black when we got up to Muir. By the time we left, the whole thing was black and looked nice.
This is the trail leaving Muir and heading up to the summit

It's funny how such an unwelcoming place, full of ice, volcanic rock and deep crevasses, can provide the most amazing views! And HOLY CRAP is right to the tent between two gaping holes in the earth!
